Fluctus signed a deal with trout farmer Qinghai Minze Longyangxia Ecological Aquaculture at Aqua Nor.

Chinese trout farmer gives Fluctus its biggest ever order


Aquaculture equipment supplier Fluctus has won an order from Chinese trout farmer Qinghai Minze Longyangxia Ecological Aquaculture for four feeding systems and spreaders.

The contract was signed on the opening day of fish farming trade show Aqua Nor, currently taking place in Trondheim, Norway.

“We look forward to working with Minze Longyangxia, which we perceive as a solid and exciting company. Fluctus will contribute with extensive experience and expertise within fish farming equipment in general and feeding solutions in particular,” said Fluctus chief executive Harald Lien in a press release.

Three feeding systems will have air-borne feeding and one will have water-borne feeding.

Water-borne feeding

“We are experiencing great interest, both in Norway and abroad, for our water-borne feeding solution,” said Lien.

Foreign markets have become even more important for Norwegian suppliers such as Fluctus in the past year.

“We are experiencing reduced investments in the Norwegian market, which we assume is still affected by the disorderly process regarding the new tax on fish farming. It is therefore both natural and necessary for the supplier industry to look abroad. The contract with Minze Longyangxia is our largest single feeding system contract ever and marks a milestone for Fluctus,” said Lien.

Service mindset

Ying Miyan, chief executive and board chairman of Minze Longyangxia, said: “Having in place reliable and durable feeding systems is an important part of our agenda for digital transformation of our farming practice. Through our communications, Fluctus team has shown not only strong competence and agility, but also a strong service mindset.

“In addition to air-borne feeding that is already common on our farms, we are excited to try Fluctus’ water-borne feeding solution - to further improve feeding performance in a more sustainable way, which has always been a main priority of our business.”
